Future Year’s Garden Plan – Creating

Q.  How do I create a garden plan for a future calendar year? When I tried to create a garden plan for 2005, I specified Custom Freeze Dates, changed the freeze dates to 2005, and the program came back and told me the fall freeze date had to be later than the spring freeze date, even though I had 2005 on both dates. The only way I could go forward was to put both dates back to 2004. Does the program have a bug? Or was I doing something wrong?

A.  You must first change the first fall freeze date to 2005, exit by clicking OK and then return to change the last spring freeze date to 2005, and then click OK again. It must be done in this order, making two separate changes – sorry for the inconvenience.
